Throughout 2010 candidates and politicians in Kentucky made a fair amount of what turned out in hindsight to be missteps and blunders.
We have compiled a list of the top five of those blunders. And we got lots of help from nominations from viewers, who noted plenty of mistakes among candidates and those lucky enough to be elected.
Some of the blunders were just bad judgment calls, others political miscalculations and of course the occasional slip of tongue.
